Rosamund Pike And Jamie Dornan On ‘A Private War’, Honoring War Reporter Marie Colvin – The Contenders London

After premiering A Private War at the Toronto Film Festival, Aviron brought stars Rosamund Pike and Jamie Dornan together for a panel to discuss the legacy of famous war correspondent Marie Colvin (played by Pike in the film), who was killed in 2012 after illegally crossing the Syrian border into the city of Homs with photographer Paul Conroy (played by Jamie Dornan).

Asked what attracted her to the role, Pike answered, “I think it’s a combination of things. Marie was a woman who I greatly admired, but I also thought it would be a story that other people, if they didn’t know her already, would find inspiring. Precisely because there’s the trope of the fearless war reporter, but here [in this story] is someone who is not fearless, who has tremendous fear, but also has tremendous belief and goes through that fear in the name of the cause she believes in.

‘A Private War’ Review: Rosamund Pike Plays War Reporter Marie Colvin in Matthew Heineman’s Raw and Riveting Narrative Debut

‘A Private War’ Review: Rosamund Pike Plays War Reporter Marie Colvin in Matthew Heineman’s Raw and Riveting Narrative Debut
To judge by Matthew Heineman’s occasionally clumsy but thoroughly harrowing biopic, renowned war reporter Marie Colvin was only afraid of two things: Dying young, and growing old. It’s a dilemma that would bind the American ex-pat to her job until the day she lost her life while covering the Syrian Civil War. For “Cartel Land” director Heineman — a notable documentary filmmaker whose recent “City of Ghosts” chronicled the ongoing atrocities committed against the people of Raqqa — Colvin’s plight offers a natural way in to the world of narrative storytelling (and the excuse to restage a half-dozen of the bloodiest modern conflicts that predated his career).

But there’s nothing opportunistic about “A Private War.” Watching the film scramble towards its inevitable conclusion, one gets the sense that Heineman sees Colvin as a kindred spirit. And while even he struggles to make sense of how she lived — or

‘Johnny English Strikes Again’ Review: Rowan Atkinson’s Latest Bond Parody Isn’t Even as Funny as Spy Movies It’s Spoofing

Like the monarchy, the metric system, and the inexplicable desire to refer to Madonna as “Madge,” the “Johnny English” franchise is one of those British things that’s never really made it across the Atlantic. Hatched from an ad campaign that remains considerably funnier than any of the feature comedies that have derived from it, these doddering James Bond spoofs are reliably massive draws on the other side of the pond, but American moviegoers don’t seem to have any interest in seeing Rowan Atkinson wreak havoc as a braindead spy who always manages to save the day. If nothing else, the limp and lifeless “Johnny English Strikes Again” serves as final confirmation that America was right to reject these moldy imports — consider it a pyrrhic victory for our paranoid new border policies.

More of the same, but also just a little bit less, “Johnny English Strikes Again” may not

‘James Bond’ Producer Barbara Broccoli Says Not to Expect a Female 007: ‘Bond Is Male’
As you may have noticed over the last few years, the only thing James Bond fans enjoy more than watching James Bond movies is speculating who will play him after Daniel Craig moves on from the franchise. Not that everyone wants 007 to be a him — many have called for the long-running spy series to pull a “Doctor Who” and cast a woman in the role made famous by the likes of Sean Connery and Timothy Dalton.

According to executive producer Barbara Broccoli, however, that won’t be happening anytime soon: “Bond is male,” she told the Guardian in a new interview. “He’s a male character. He was written as a male and I think he’ll probably stay as a male.”

“And that’s fine,” she said. “We don’t have to turn male characters into women. Let’s just create more female characters and make the story fit those female characters.

This year’s lineup of narrative and documentary films includes awards-season hopefuls, select arthouse pics and classic titles from years past.

On Oct. 8, Alfonso Cuaron will appear at the fest to screen his latest work, “Roma,” fresh from its Golden Lion win at Venice.
